What are swallowing disorders? 

Swallowing involves a coordinated set of movements of the mouth, the tongue, the pharynx which is the back of the throat, and the esophagus. If even one of the parts involved is affected, it can lead to difficulties in swallowing. There are mainly 2 types of swallowing disorders - odynophagia, which is pain while swallowing, and dysphagia, which is difficulty swallowing.
